Breaking news

July 2020: CODE reports that the Southwark resturant is expanding downstairs into the Native space, to add 40 more seats and an outdoor terrace.

Harden's says

'Proper' Algarvian cuisine - the grilled, piri-piri seasoned 'chicken frango' familiar to many who holiday in Portugal - has arrived at London Bridge, along with regional charcuterie, octopus rice and pasteis de nata, plus natural Portuguese wines. The first floor dining space is a destination in itself, with vaulted ceilings, huge windows and a skylight. Arcade Food Theatre at the bottom of the Centrepoint tower has a sibling stall, called Casita do Frango.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Grilled chicken is the centrepiece” (frango means chicken in Portuguese) and is done in three different ways: peri peri, lemon, and garlic-and-oregano – at this “buzzing”, airy and artfully converted two-year-old, not far from Borough Market. “Sides, salads and especially the custard tarts are of a very high standard too, and service, like the room, is bright and cheery”. A sibling stall is now open in Centre Point’s Arcade Food Theatre, see also.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
